It must snowing in one of the heads at Google.... Cos I can't see anything, or maybe then you need a HD7990 or a 590 to actually render the dainty snowflakes.....

I have IE9 and the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Firefox Nightly. It works in all browsers, except for IE9. Just go to Google.com, and type this: let it snow

Snow at 2x the power use of regular Google(100 watts on my media center vs under 50). hell its still 20 watts more consuming then the tomshardware.com home page and near 2 the power of reading the article it self.

Is that done with HTML 5? I though it was supposed to save power? Maybe its Firefox that is this way. Even the http://www.borderlandsthegame.com/home.html page used less power(while having the same peak usage).

This is a legit question.

A few other things to bear in mind...

Once the screen has properly misted up, you will get a Defrost button, however it's more fun to hold down the left mouse button and draw or write in the condensation. Please note that no defrosted area will mist up again, and that you cannot use Google normally until you've clicked Defrost. In addition, this doesn't seem to work on my Gingerbread phone with the built in browser, Firefox or Opera Mini. Not exactly surprised, though.
